Default Not Really Sports - But ACTION Yes!

On my way home from photographing an Eagle Ceremony (Boy Scouts) I stopped at a local farm near our house. Why because my son was supposed to be there watching some wrasslin' matches. Crazy stuff. In our little one stop light town I would never believed such craziness would come. But yep they were putting on a show. First time i been to wrasslin' since I was 10 years old.

Of course I had to get the camera and take a few shots. Tried different lenses but ended up using the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 with the 430EX flash. I must admit it was entertaining but really silly. I laughed a BUNCH!. Here are a few shots.

These are fantastic. I used to watch WWF Wrestling in the hey day of Hulk Hogan, Andre The Giant and George "The Animal" Steele, et al! You've nailed the action!
